for the united states and israel and the palestinians and the u.n. under the obama administration will suffer no consequences from that. so if you're the palestinian authority or even more if you're hamas, the lesson that you learn is that ultimately, if you just keep the pressure on, the united nations will deliver israel for you. now, that's a badly misguided view, but when secretary clinton reacts the way she did just in the tape you showed, i think it sends the wrong signal to the palestinians and makes the negotiated outcome less likely, not more likely. >> and i want to ask you about what would have to happen, but i want a side bar on what happens at the united nations. as you described, despite objections from the u.s. and israel, they did get the status they were looking for and maybe they wanted more. why did that happen? >> well, i think because the united nations basically wasn't concerned enough about the consequences of this declaration by the general assembly to take adequate steps. you know, we faced this back in 1989 and 1990 and the george h.w. bush administration then secret

"the new republic" magazine obtained the internal poll numbers from the romney camp in the days leading up to the november 6th election. in iowa the campaign's numbers showed them tied with obama. in reality obama beat romney by about 6 points. in colorado romney's team thought they were up by 2.5. they actually wound up losing by 5.5. in new hampshire, romney's polls had him up by 3. the new repep luck showed his numbers were off in wisc

untrumpeted by the white house. up until now the obama administration's record on whistle blowers has been problematic. as they highlighted in an august document defending the administration's record on leaks, they have prosecuted twice as many cases under be the espionage act as all other administrations combined. the obama administration's history of aggressively prosecuting leakers has dissturkd lawmakers and activists from the left and right because of the essential role of whistle blowers in rooting out malfeasance. barack obama has managed to both prosecute a record number of leakers and sign genuine concrete legislation to protect whistle blowers. now who deserves whistle-blower protections is up for debate and the meaning for that as well. no case illustrates that more acutely than bradley manning. the army private who is accused of leaking classified documents to wikileaks. he testified about his detention over the past two years. joining me is daniel brian, a.l. press. author of "beautiful souls, saying no." ." ed pilkington. he's been covering the trial and zachary iskole. he's

forgotten what 9/11 was about? >> i think from the beginning of the obama administration has attempted to close guantanamo bay. as you remember they attempted with the prison in thompson, illinois to close guantanamo and move the detainees there. it ended up with opposition from the senate and the houses. this vote as you pointed out 50-41. they have released this government accountability report in order to build additional support for their effort to close guantanamo. people are saying these are not intelligence analysts that are releasing this report. the think the memory of 9/11 is still fresh enough. khalid shaikh mohammed and people like this who have been so explicit in terms of what they would like to do to the united states, i think those memories are still well enough understood by the american public that there is going to be continued opposition to the administration's attempts here, regardless of their efforts to build support in the senate. >> harris: i wanted to ask you about thompson, illinois. 2009 to retrofit to host military trials, house up to 100 terror suspects. a

forces? >> i think the obama administration needs to make a big decision. do you confer recognition on national council as legitimate authority of the syrian people. the reason for doing this, they need to push assad out as quickly as possible. he's holding on, and if something doesn't change in this equilibrium he may hold on for months on end. this war could spread in lebanon, jordan, iraq, that's not in the interest of the united states. they need to reinforce this coalition. that's one reason. the other is one of self interest. it's likely that at some point assad is going to fall. this particular group or some element of it will take over as the government of syria. we should want to have influence there given the importance of syria, and the importance of syria to iran. because if we can separate a new syrian government from the iranians that would be a major strategic advantage to the united states. >> eliot: michael, it certainly does seem that the trendline is not favorable to assad, that's good news. but is this another instance where we've been leading from behind, where

an opportunity to get at what the nature of the obama administration foreign policy is, paul. and susan rice in some ways encapsulates a strain in democratic policy thinking that goes way back, a story that's actually told by samantha power, a close aide to president obama and wrote about genocide in with a randa. and susan rice is state department that makes a cameo appearance in the book, quoted asking, if we call what happened in rwanda genocide, how does it play for us in what were then the mid term elections of 1994. well, there's a pattern here as we see. one is a reluctance to have america be engaged in certain issues, and the second one is politicizing foreign policy issues because they might hurt the president's political stance. >> paul: and you want a secretary of state, if you're-- well, the american people want a secretary of state who is some more independent judgment and not thinking so much about the politics, is that the point? >> that would be one thing that you would look for in the secretary of state. >> paul: sorry for stating the obvious. >> the national interests and n
